    My shipped eggs came today - very well packed and in great shape... but are the WRONG COLOR! I ordered frizzled easter eggers and all the eggs are brown with FC on them - guessing that's for frizzled cochin. They're in the bator now and I've contacted the seller. With luck she'll send another batch - but that means I'm going to have a very staggered hatch... If she can ship today they'll be here friday, if not then we'll have to wait until monday to be set on wednesday... just enough to be a pain in the butt between resting shipped eggs w/out the turner, and turning things off for lockdown. (I also have another dozen coming tomorrow or friday).

    I don't want to buy another incubator - how do people handle staggered hatches like this?
